Variation: Healthy Oven Pumpkin-Orange Cranberry Cornbread
This is my Thanksgiving signature side dish. I make this ahead, and freeze it. Of course, you can always make it the day before or day of the big event. This recipe is so moist from the inclusion of pumpkin puree and the acid in the buttermilk. I also use my Healthy Oven Mixing Method, plus a folding action instead of a stirring movement when making healthy quick breads. I find it creates less gluten (more tenderness and moistness) in recipes such as this where there is less fat and sugar, both tenderizers. Also go to my recipe for Moist Cornbread Squares or Muffins.
